Combat colors forMMI

Postby ALites on Sun Aug 12, 2012 9:17 pm

Does anybody have a color photo of the MM1 model B. What I have found on the internet shows A model and it is a test launch either Canaveral or Vandenburg and it shows vertical stripes. I think that those were for test purposes because later black and white photos do not show those stripes. I also would be interested in any photos showing rail shipment. Wish I had taken some but I am sure that security would have questioned and being in the LCC we did not have much of a chance to view the missiles. I am trying to model the MMI in 1/4 scale and want to get the colors right.

thanks for the welcome. This site has brought back at lot of memories. I pulled a number of alerts at the NPS Delta site between 69 and 71. I used my name hoping I might get back in touch with some of those who served at Ellsworth AFB during that time.
